It's a really good film . . . and also a bit different. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. By the way, I'm totally astonished by this news. I thought this film was beyond hope of restoration.I've never seen this film--I'll have to pick up this new Blu-ray and fix that!
I hope this announcement bodes well for other problematic titles (not naming names, of course ).
Really? You thought that? No, sir, the "long, long time coming to blu ray" would be applied to movies made or set in neighboring areas such as Ireland. Regardless, I'll be buying this one, too.This is great news! I thought this title would be a long, long time in coming to blu ray.
How does a package that gives you BOTH widescreen versions, grab you?Even though I love MGM musicals I never have seen more than a few minutes of this, it just never grabs me.[...]
Not dopey. The news of this release is so fresh it is currently not available to preorder. I am sure that will change over the next few days.Now, where the heck do I order this? I can't find a place to order or pre-order. Sorry if this is a dopey question, but I can't find it on amazon, warner archive, etc.
Kinda surprised they didn’t wait till July 7th (7/7) to release SBFSB.May the Seventh For Seven Brides For Seven Brothers!

Get ready for one of the liveliest, leaping-est, sassiest and happiest musicals ever, as Warner Archive Collection proudly unveils its Two-Disc Special Edition Blu-ray release of the Oscar-winning 1954 MGM classic "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers"!
Directed by Stanley Donen ("Singin' in the Rain"), and starring Jane Powell ("Royal Wedding," "Hit the Deck") and Howard Keel ("Annie Get Your Gun," "Kiss Me Kate"), "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" was nominated for four Academy(R) Awards and won for Best Scoring of a Musical Picture. This Western musical is distinguished by a wonderful score of original songs from the team of Gene de Paul & Johnny Mercer ("L'il Abner"), and brilliant, acrobatic dancing scenes choreographed by Michael Kidd ("The Band Wagon," "Guys and Dolls").
Adam (Howard Keel), the eldest of seven brothers, goes to town to get a wife. He convinces Milly (Jane Powell) to marry him that same day. After they return to his backwoods home she discovers he has six brothers -- all living in his cabin. Milly sets out to reform the uncouth siblings, who are anxious to get wives of their own. Then, after reading about the Roman capture of the Sabine women, Adam develops an inspired solution to his brothers' loneliness...kidnap the women they want from the surrounding villages.
